Inhale...
Inhale: Channel draconic energy to suck in the air around you, dealing [1122 / 1132 / 1146 / 1157] Flame Damage to nearby enemies and healing you for 100% of the damage caused. After 2.5 seconds, you exhale fire, dealing [2248 / 2271 / 2297 / 2321] Flame Damage to nearby enemies.
Deep Breath: Channel draconic energy to suck in the air around you, dealing 1163 Flame Damage to nearby enemies and healing you for 100% of the damage caused. Any enemy hit that is casting is interrupted, set Off Balance, and stunned for 2 seconds. After 2.5 seconds, you exhale fire, dealing [2902 / 2933 / 2966 / 2997] Flame Damage to nearby enemies.
Draw Essence: Channel draconic energy to suck in the air around you, dealing 1163 Flame Damage to nearby enemies and healing you for [147 / 148 / 149 / 150]% of the damage caused. After 2.5 seconds, you exhale fire, dealing 2326 Flame Damage to nearby enemies and restoring 10% of the ability's cost for each enemy hit as Magicka.
... Exhale

Inhale drains Health from nearby enemies around you and then deals Fire Damage to all nearby enemies a few seconds later. The Deep Breath morph causes this skill to interrupt any enemies that are casting a spell, stunning them and setting them off balance, while Draw Essence morph restores your Magicka by 10% of its cost for each enemy hit, which can allow you to cast it repeatedly in a large mob.

NotesEdit

  • The fire explosion will not trigger if you cast Inhale again before it would.
  • Draw Essence is a recommended morph for the Dragonknight Initiate build.

Patch NotesEdit

* This ability's initial life drain morphs can now hit a maximum of three targets. This also applies to Inhale's morphs.
* Increased the damage dealt by this ability by 30%. The damage increases with each rank for the first four ranks, and then remains constant for both morphs. The explosion from this ability and its morphs now does fire damage; the inhalation still does Magic damage.
* Increased the exhale damage (the second hit) from this ability and the Draw Essence morph by 40%. The Deep Breath morph has had its exhale damage increased by 16% to match this value.
  • This ability and its morphs now hits 6 targets, increased from 3 targets, and follows standard area of effect damage guidelines for additional targets.
  • Increased the cost of this ability and its morphs by 6%.
  • Deep Breath: This morph no longer increases the damage of the exhale damage (the second hit) due to the baseline damage increases for Inhale, described below. It will continue to interrupt targets on the inhale (the first hit) as a morph effect.
  • Draw Essence: This morph will now restore 10% of the ability's cost as Magicka per target hit with the exhale instead of restoring Magicka based on the damage dealt.
* Reduced the cost of this ability and its morphs by approximately 6%.
* Increased the damage of the initial hit of this ability and its morphs by 25%.
  • Increased the damage of the delayed explosion by approximately 7%. This was done to adhere the ability to our AoE standards. Note the initial hit of the abilities is half of the AoE standard, because it heals for 100% of the damage caused, which takes it to that standard.
  • Removed the 6 target cap for the heal, interrupt, and resource restore for this ability. Note this puts this ability into the "rule breaker" category.
